Care Home Claims
The UK population is living longer, and as a result the number of elderly care home residents is increasing each year. With the rising uptake of residents going into care, this should not be met with a reduction in the quality of care received. Sadly, we have found that due to staff shortages, our front-line workers are under enormous amounts of pressure to look after our elderly population.
Although our front-line care workers are doing a fantastic job, unfortunately, they have been let down by the lack of funding for staff, with many care homes across the UK left under pressure. As a result, many residents are not able to receive the care and attention which they require.
It is frighteningly apparent that there is very little awareness in the UK as to how to deal with any type of suffering, neglect, or abuse within the care home sector. We are striving to raise awareness to the problems within these care homes, as we look to push for an increase in support that they receive.
Here at Pabla & Pabla Solicitors, we have been working closely with these types of claims for some time. Over the years, we have found that the amount of people who have experienced suffering is concerningly high. Standard complaints tend to include residents experiencing pressure sores, dehydration, unsanitary conditions, incorrect medication, lack of exercise or mental stimulation, bodily injury etc. There are also sadly some incidents of abuse.
We have a specialist team of lawyers who can help to assist in ensuring your loved ones receive the proper standard of care from today onwards. In cases where this is too late, we can assist you in claiming compensation, as well as raising awareness of these issues for the benefit of future residents
If you believe your parent or relative has not received the care which they should be receiving within a UK care home, please contact Pabla’s for a confidential, no obligation discussion regarding any concerns that you have. All claims are brought on a no win, no fee basis.
